official with president obama's epa and forced down after a youtube talking about a message and overseas he oversaw texas with the epa and talking how he gets the companies in line and we've got quote here, at the time, it was kind of like how the romans used to conquer the villages in the mediterranean, go in a little turkish town somewhere and find the first five guys they saw and they'd crucify them and then you know that town was easy to manage for the next few years, and so he was forced out in the wake of that, and now, he's heading up the sierra club and continues to cause problems for these coal plants down in texas. >> reporter: two years after he said that he's head of the beyond coal campaign for the he sierra club and they have said explicitly, their goal is to move texas off of coal fired electricity and into cleaner energy sources. >> megyn: yeah, it's an interesting case, lauren, thanks so much. >> reporter: all right. >> megyn: republicans are already calling this morning's court ruling on the president's recess appointments a big win for the constitution. what does it mea
she and president obama sat down forgave us a peak into their relationship and how things have seemingly changed in the last few years between them. is that a surprise looking at where we started in 2008? >> on the face of it, it is a surprise. they have evolved, people close to secretary clinton have talked about this kind of interesting relationship that has developed. it has certainly been very constructive. they are happy to make a public show of it. those of us that cover the ins and outs of this will look at it in the the 2016 contest, wondering if vice president isn't so happy that the big interview he does to begin his second term is not with him but the outgoing secretary of state. those questions will be raised. i think the point that's interesting to me. if you look at the coalition of voters that president obama put together for his second term, they seem to be voting blocs that could naturally flow to hillary clinton as the nominee, particularly as a historic nominee if she is able to become the first woman president. it is important to point out as much as we fixa

obama and hillary clinton gave a joint interview. it was their idea. they sat down with steve kroft. steve kroft thinks he knows why he was chosen. >>steve: steve kroft sat down with pierce morgan. he said he was absolutely flabbergasted when he discovered the white house wanted him to be the interviewer. he was asked why does obama keep sitting in the chair opposite you? he said we're fair, we do great editing and we're not going to play gotcha, we're not going to go out of our way to make him look stupid, and he knows that. >>gretchen: brit hume on special report last night put his thoughts into perspective. >> you didn't hear it on "60 minutes" but president obama is unhappy with the press. in a second weekend interview with the new republic he grumbled about fox news and rush limbaugh. president obama also complained a reporter generally treats the republicans and democrats as equivalent balancing the views of one side with the other. they fail to note one side -- his -- is trying to do what's right and -- quote -- "we haven't seen that kind of attitude on the other side." never
. >>> and in the big finish tonight, president obama and outgoing secretary of state hillary clinton sat down for a rare joint interview with steve kroft of "60 minutes" this weekend. the two discussed their past rivalry, their current working relationship and american foreign policy. it was a public sign of solidarity between the two former rivals. yet that proved to be too much for the folks over at fox news. the "fox & friends" trio complained about the lack of real news, and attacked crawford for not digging deeper into clinton's health issues. >> the interview was awkward. they were giddy saying goodbye. and right at the top, steve kroft said they only gave us 30 minutes, which of course means there is not going to be any real news. and there wasn't. >> but if you give somebody 30 minutes, you could get real into it, especially steve kroft, who is usually awesome. but i think for some reason they didn't dig into anything at all. >> 30 minutes? come on. >> i would like to know, did she pass out and hit her head? was she pushed? how did she hit her head and get a concussion? >> and the whi

. a joint sit-down interview on "60 minutes" this sunday with president obama. as secretary clinton transitions from public life to private life, anything she does will be studied for clues to her future and a potential presidential run. a joint appearance with the president can only add to the speculation. ed rendell is former governor of pennsylvania and an msnbc analyst, and marjorie margolies is a professor at the university of pennsylvania. she's also -- her son, by the way, mark, is married to chelsea clinton. i don't know which one of you knows more about the clintons. i'm going to take a guess and go to marjorie. professor, don't laugh. i'm trying to figure this out. i thought secretary clinton was a smash hit this week and she was lucky -- >> she was magnificent. >> the jackals made her look even better. they may have gotten her passions up once or twice but didn't hurt her a bit. my sense is this, what do you make of the relationship between the president personified or pictured by the fact that i have never heard of a president of the united states sharing time on "60 min

. you said all elections come down to the economy. you can make the argument president obama centered his candidacy on social issues. what about today with the fiscal environment the united states is facing? what we have better discussions during these debates that centered more on the economy? >> i think in the end, this one did come down to the economy. the president may be basing his second term on social issues. if you take his inauguration speech as a guidepost to where he wants to go from here. but i did not hear him to talk a lot during the campaign. the economy began to get better. i did not see him spending a lot of time talking about gay rights during the election. i did not hear him talk very much about gun control. i think it was mentioned once in one of the debates. i think they thought they had to get -- what they concentrated on, in some ways, this was not so much an election about issues as it was about identifying their voters and getting their voters to the polls and recognizing the demographics in this country were changing dramatically. they figured that out and ho

white house. he has helped advise president obama on some of his key foreign policy decisions, including drawing down the troops in afghanistan, ending the war in iraq, and also responding to some of the natural disasters that have occurred in recent years, including haiti, and japan. he is someone who has built up a lot of trust here in the white house. you heard that today when president obama talked about him, talked about how much he meant to the staffers here. we should also mention he was pictured in the situation room during the raid on osama bin laden, so this is certainly someone who is very close to the president and will be a key figure moving forward with this white house. andrea. >> thank you so much, kristen welker. david gregory here and pete williams joining us as well. autowe've seen good chiefs of staff and bad. some of the best. jim bakker, ken duberstein, leon panetta in times of trouble. >> howard baker certainly rescuing the ronald reagan second term from don regan, a bad chief of staff by all accounts. what is the pluses and minuses of denis mcdonough. he knows the

will stop it as a down payment on a slippery slope. jon: these are the people in 2008, senator obama sock clinging to their guns and religion? >> yes, these are the people that he believes he can move and persuade to be in favor of gun control in states like west virginia and wyoming. it's not going to happen. i will be very surprised if this thing ever gets out of the senate. i think speaker john boehner love the idea of saying that we will give serious consideration to whatever harry reid senate passes and sends to us in a matter of gun control. it's a terrible issue for democrats. i don't think obama has the loyalty among democrats in gun control that he thinks he has. jon: hairy weed has the support of the nra in times past. >> yes, harry reid cannot cross the nra. there are voters in a lot of these places. the nra doesn't speak for them. this is a popular position among actual voters and you can see the red states with blue feathers. jon: good analysis as always. thank you so much. >> it's great to be here be to growing pressure on the senate to do something they haven't done in four

professional here in dc. earlier you said all presidential elections come down to the economy. the argument can be made the president obama won a second term on social issues. what we have been served better if the discussions during these debates centered more on the economy? >> i do think, in the end, this one came down to the economy. the president may be basing his second term on social issues. if you take his inauguration speech as sort of a guidepost for where he wants to go from here -- i did not hear him talk a lot about, during the campaign, he seemed to be talking about jobs and getting people back to work. i think the economy began to get better. i did not see him spending a lot of time talking about gay rights during the election. i did not hear him talk about gun control. i think it was mentioned once in one of the debates. i think he thought -- that his people thought that they had -- what they concentrated on -- in some ways this was not so much an election about issues as it was about identifying their voters and getting their voters through polls and recognizing that the demogr
